The former UFC star Daniel Cormier has a great affinity towards WWE and he has expressed his desire to possibly call a WWE event or even compete inside the squared circle in the company.
Daniel Cormier opens up on possibly joining WWE
In a new interview with Monster Energy, he updated fans on that dream. Cormier has never shied away from expressing his love of pro wrestling during UFC broadcasts. At UFC 276 he got to geek out twice: when Jessica Rose Clark walked out to Shawn Michaels’ theme song, and when Israel Adesanya did an homage to The Undertaker. Both times Cormier marked out.
Speaking to Monster Energy in a live Twitter Spaces Q&A, Cormier revealed where things stood between him and the WWE. He said:
“You know I talked to them [to the WWE]. I actually talked to them quite a bit, you know. Like I’m friends with a lot of the people that are in that company. I speak to Triple H. I’ve got some friends now competing.”
“So my brother, ‘my brother’s’ not my actual brother. One of my friends, Jacob Kasper, is now a part of the Creed brothers in the WWE. They are the NXT champions, right? So they’re the smaller league champions, and so I’ve been asked a couple of times to do something. Do stuff with them for the promotion, but I haven’t been able to make it work, but it’s something that I really do want to do.”

Leading up to WrestleMania 37 in April last year, Roman Reigns had sparked a short feud with Daniel Cormier. The WWE superstar called out Cormier during an interview with Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour, saying:
“I’ll smash anybody one-on-one, whether it’s Daniel Bryan, Edge, D.C. [Daniel Cormier]. I’ll smash them all one-on-one. Get him from behind the table and back in the gym, maybe, maybe he could have a chance. I don’t know. It would be a short story with D.C.”
Who knows, we might end up witnessing Cormier and Reigns in a battle down the road.
